The East Anglia region

The North Norfolk Coast is one of the 33 areas in England that have been designated as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is renowned for its big open sky and offers quiet, unspoilt beaches with salt marshes and undulating countryside that makes it ideal for rambling and cycling. Bird watchers are well catered for with several RSPB sites and the salt marshes provide an ideal habitat for overwintering geese and other wild fowl.

North West Norfolk has some great beaches on offer including Old Hunstanton Beach, Heacham Beach, Snettisham Beach, Brancaster Beach, Holme Beach and Wells Beach. The whole area is a great location for enjoying magnificent stretches of superb sandy beaches combined with the classic seaside facilities at the holiday resort of Hunstanton, which was awarded Blue Flag status in 2010. Enjoy a pony ride on the beach, visit the fun fair or take a boat trip to see the seals or view the Hunstanton cliffs from the water. The combination of vast expanses of sand and extensive shallow sea, makes it an ideal playground.

Hunstanton also offers kite surfing and is a base for the local sailing club. On the north coast are many small harbours that are home to other sailing clubs, such as at Burnham Overy Staithe.

Away from the beaches you can explore the gently rolling Norfolk countryside, dotted with farms and historic flint and Norfolk carrstone villages like Burnham Market, Thornham, Holme, Brancaster, Heacham and Snettisham. This magical landscape dotted with church spires and windmills is a wonderful tapestry of rural England at its best.

For those who love the grandeur of stately homes, there are a number to visit, such as Holkham Hall, Houghton Hall and the Queen’s own ‘country cottage’ – Sandringham.

For others, with an historical interest, Lord Nelson was born at Burnham Thorpe and gained his first lessons in seamanship on the North Norfolk coast. You can still get a pint of real ale in his local pub, which was named after him.


Ringstead is a quiet village just a few minutes from the coast and is well-served by the village store, which also offers a number of rooms of antiques and curios for sale. The village pub is just down the road and offers real ale and fine dining.

The Peddars Way runs through the village. It is an ancient route that possibly predates the Roman occupation, stretching 46 miles from Suffolk to the coast at Holme Next The Sea.

Children are well catered for with a small enclosed playground with swings, roundabout and slide just a few yards away from the cottage. And just down the road is the village duck pond with hungry water fowl just waiting for scraps of bread!
